Conclusion: At first glance, the LG Optimus 7 is a great looking handset. Although the screen is gorgeous, the buttons and overall build quality are disappointing. We'd like to see a better camera to set the handset apart, but we definitely approve of the inclusion of Play to DLNA which gives the LG Optimus 7 an edge.
Summary: LG and Microsoft aren't exactly the oldest friends, but friends, they are. Microsoft's Windows Mobile has seen some limited action with LG devices, and during the interim period between Windows Mobile 6.5 to the current Windows Phone 7, both companies have been doing their best to keep their heads low. The truth is, these partners have been working very closely to bring the Windows Phone 7 platform towards its final stages.
Pros: Simple and well designed with good weight, Panorama Shot, SearchScan and Play To apps enhance user experience, Fast autofocus and image processing speeds
Cons: Flat volume and power buttons, Low battery mileage

Summary: The LG Optimus 7 may lack any 'wow' factor, but it is still an impressively constructed smartphone that benefits from Microsoft's slick Windows Phone 7 operating system. The Optimus 7 could well be the best LG smartphone we've seen in a long time.
Pros: 16GB internal memory, good build quality, relatively compact for a smartphone with a 3.8in screen
Cons: No memory card slot for extra storage, physical keys aren't backlit
